xemacs should default to utf-8 in utf-8 locale
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:00:31 EST
Description of Problem:
When XEmacs is started in a utf locale, it doesn't default to using
utf-8 encoding for buffers and files.
Steps to Reproduce:
XEmacs uses iso8859-1 encoding by default.
Should use utf-8 encoding by default.
This should be fixed in xemacs-21.4.12-8.
Still very much broken as of xemacs-21.4.15-5 (FC2). I get a nice
"U00E1 not defined" message when pressing Ã¡ (dead-' + a, á in
HTML-speak; spanish keyboard). Strangely, some characters do work (but
seem to give Latin-1 input, i.e. Â¿).
